Well, I don't know how much these were "trash", but I DID buy them on Craigslist. And I MAY have stole them for a song. Seriously....I'd been looking for quite some time, off and on, for bunkbeds. It seems like the only crap people were always selling on Craigslist were those poopy metal beds. WHO wants those, EVER? And those were the ones that were "affordable." Any wood beds I'd find were either solid boxes and ugly, or they wanted 300 dollars or more. Anywho, the morning I got my tax return I decided I should probably just give a quick looksy at "the list" and see if there was anything at all.
There it was....just listed that day...a pair of solid wood bunkbeds, with personality even for only $185.00. YES!! I emailed them, and after some phonecalls I asked if they'd take $160.00. They said yes. I said.....I'm on my way!
ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY BUCKS?! For real? I can TOTALLY handle that for solid wood bunks.
Off my Daddy and I went in his miniature truck to Queen Creek to pick them up.
I was so happy when we got there to see that they were actually pretty short, totally perfect. Just ugly yellow, knotty pine. THAT had to go.
After a BUTT TON of work painting, and then letting them sit in my garage for nearly a week, they are FINALLY in the kids room and they're great. The kids are beside themselves with excitement.
Right...so here we go:
WHAT? I mean Puh-lease...you can't tell me the white isn't 4 million times better. Even if it DID take me an ENTIRE day and more cans of spray paint than I ever care to tell you. YIKES!! And now...I have a lot of touching up to do. You wouldn't believe how much you "miss" on those undersides. hahaha
Don't ya just love it? I'm happy. And Max finally in a real big boy bed. SO GREAT! He feels so cool.
